TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors say they’ll formally rest their case in a preliminary hearing accusing two brothers of robbing and killing four women in January.

The state intends to make the announcement Friday morning in district court.

Brothers James and Cedric Poore, who police say robbed and shot the women for fear they’d identify them, are also expected back in court. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges and are being represented by separate attorneys.

Attorneys for the Poores will also try to convince a judge Friday to let them call their own witnesses to defend their side of the case.

Friday will mark the seventh day of testimony in the preliminary hearing, which started in July and had to be reset to this week due to scheduling conflicts.
